Mobile Messaging Addresses the ‘Convenience Conundrum’ of Digital Banking
OpenMarket, a leader in enterprise mobile engagement, will present a webinar with Javelin on February 11, 2016 at 10:00 AM PST titled, “Mobile Messaging Addresses the ‘Convenience Conundrum’ of Digital Banking.” This webinar will discuss how mobile messaging will play an increasingly critical role as financial institutions (FIs) seek new ways to proactively interact with consumers, and how customers appreciate the convenience of texting with their banks.
Mobile engagement adoption is growing. According to Javelin, by 2019, 52% of U.S. consumers will receive email or text messages from their financial institution. That translates to 126 million U.S. adults seeking a better way to monitor and manage their money while on the go.
This webinar will explore the role of mobile messaging in redefining personal banking and how FIs can use it to build trust, increase security, improve customer service, and trigger sales opportunities with bankers. We’ll share an in-depth look at mobile messaging use cases that will strengthen the FI’s relationship with its banking customers. Participants of this webinar will learn:
- What high-value customers (e.g., mobile-first customers, millennials and tech-savvy consumers) want from banking and payment alerts.
- How to make financial alerts (via text or in-app push) stand out from the increasing communication clutter in order to target different high-value customer segments.
- How to use mobile messaging to counter the threat of commoditization and silent churn.
